Pregnant for the 1st time at 48

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, February 20, 2011 | 3 comments

At 48 I am pregnant for the first time, without fertility treatments.

I had 2 donor implants that didn't work when I was 46 and 47 and stopped all treatments earlier this year. Got pregnant on my honeymoon, isn't that perfect?

It's the first marriage for both of us..

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.

    Hi. I am 48, also married for the first time (as of 4.5 years ago) to a man 2 years older than who also had never married before. Since we married, we've been trying to get pregnant but with no success. We have not had fertility treatments. However, this morning I had a positive test! I'm almost afraid to believe it's true. I know that at this age, women often miscarry. But we're praying that it will stay. Will pray the same for you! Leah
